Although Juventus are comfortable at the top of the table of Serie A, the season still isn’t even half way, so things can change. And one of the teams that hope to ruin Juve’s plans is Inter. Currently, they have 11 points less than Juventus, but the two play this Friday evening, so that gap can become smaller. Or, it can get bigger. And the latter option seems more plausible considering that the match is played at Juve’s Allianz Stadium in Turin. So, who’s gonna be the happier side at the end of the 90 minutes? The answer might lie in Juventus vs Inter prediction & betting tips!
With 13 wins and only one draw in Serie A this season,Juventus are at the very top of the table. They plan to stay there till the end and considering how strong their squad is, that plan seems easy to achieve.
This team has a really deep squad, with fantastic players in every position. And most of them have been in the club for a while. That includes getting to the Champions League final in 2016/2017. But, there’s a big difference this season – they now have Cristiano Ronaldo in the team.
CR7 has been their best player so far, scoring 10 goals in 14 matches, which makes him the top scorer of Serie A (shared top place with Krzysztof Piatek from Genoa). On top of that, he’s also made 5 goal assists in the league.
Of course, Juve are much, much more than just Ronaldo. And Inter will have a very difficult time trying to stop them. Juventus can attack their net from all angels, but do Inter have what it takes to repel those attacks?
Even though their form hasn’t been too brilliant this season, Inter are still very high on the table. They have 29 points and are currently occupying the third spot. But, they want more. They have a fabulous team with some really ambitious players who want to get in the title race.
Sure, Juve are far away from them on the top, but winning in Turin would get them a bit closer. And more importantly, it would give them a huge mental boost for the rest of the season. Considering that this season they’re competing not only in Serie A, but Champions League as well, doing well on Friday evening would mean a lot to them.
Obviously, just by looking at their players, you see that their strongest point is their attack. But, their manager, Luciano Spalletti,seems to prefer defending in big matches. For example, when Inter played Tottenham last week at the Wembley, they played extremely defensively. Even their best striker, Mauro Icardi had to pull back to his half. Unfortunately for them, this didn’t bring them any points. Maybe they’ll have more luck in the game with Juve?

Juventus vs Inter Prediction
I think Juventus are much better team than Inter and considering that this game is played at their turf, they should win it without too many problems. Still, I don’t think we’ll see too many goals, because Inter are likely to defend with all they got and look for their chances from counterattacks.
